Bromley Evening Decorative & Fine Arts Society

Welcome to the home page of Bromley Evening Decorative and Fine Arts Society (BEDFAS)!  


We are a society of 200 plus men and women who are interested and involved in the world of the Fine Arts.

Every month from October to June we have illustrated talks given by expert lecturers on a wide variety of topics like painting, sculpture, furniture, porcelain, jewellery.

We enjoy social events, outings and tours in this country and abroad which are stimulating and fun.  Our work for Young Arts is an important part of our society

We have the reputation of being a friendly group - you are welcome to come and find out for yourself!


We are one of three local societies affiliated to NADFAS (National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies) which is a leading arts charity whose aims include :

  • Opening the world of the arts through lectures
  • Encouraging arts projects for young people in schools (Young Arts)
  • Helping to preserve our heritage through voluntary work (with training if appropriate) in churches, museums, stately homes,archives, etc.


We are part of the Greater London Area of NADFAS, and you can find useful, up-to-date details of events in the London Area by clicking on using sex sites for finding dates online
